Men Evolving Badly

American manhood is in crisis, judging by a surge of manifestos such as The Decline of Men, The Disposable Male, and Save the Males. Performing his own culture check, from High Noon to The Simpsons, the author crashes the pity party. (..)

jerry [Jerry Seinfeld]: What is this? What are we doing? What in god’s name are we doing?
george [Jason Alexander]: What?
jerry: Our lives!! What kind of lives are these? We’re like children. We’re not men.
george: No, we’re not. We’re not men.
jerry: We come up with all these stupid little reasons to break up with these women.
george: I know. I know. That’s what I do. That’s what I do.
jerry: Are we going to be sitting here when we’re 60 like two idiots?
george: We should be having dinner with our sons when we’re 60.
jerry: We’re pathetic … you know that?
george: Yeah, like I don’t know that I’m pathetic. —Seinfeld, “The Engagement.”
